As most of us know, there are periods throughout the year when it seems to be more dangerous than normal to be traveling in your car. Forbes Magazine researched this phenomenon using statistics from AAA and the National Highway Safety Administration to figure out which times actually are statistically more likely to result in car accidents. Their results? August is the most dangerous month in which to drive, and Saturday is the most dangerous day of the week to drive, especially in the evening. The reason was attributed to driver distractability, intoxication, and speeding.
Our law firm has seen several serious accidents involving driver fatigue and driver distractability, which led to severe injuries. While you may be responsible, safe, and focused on the road, this does not mean that everyone you are sharing the road with is as well. Defensive driving is especially important on truck-heavy roads and highways.
